What is Copyright!!??

What You Must Know About Copyrights -

Copyright is a legal form of protection for an author’s work. It is a sort of intellectual property. In simple words, any type of content can be protected through copyright. It provides exclusive publication, distribution, and usage rights of the author. Copyright law helps talented authors, the exclusionary right to make and sell copies of their works, the right to spin off their works, and the right to spectacle their works to the public. The categories of work that can be protected by the copyright laws are books, songs, films, paintings, photographs, software, and poems.

The quote I like from the Larry Lessign TED talk is “The war against illegal file-sharing is like the churches age old war against masturbation. It’s a war you just can’t win”
